How to Turn On or Off Narrator Echo Toggle Keys when Turned On or Off in Windows 10

Narrator is a screen-reading app built into Windows 10.

Narrator lets you use your PC without a display or mouse to complete common tasks if you’re blind or have low vision. It reads and interacts with things on the screen, like text and buttons. Use Narrator to read and write email, browse the internet, and work with documents.

Specific commands let you navigate Windows, the web, and apps, as well as get info about the area of the PC you’re in. Navigation is available using headings, links, landmarks, and more. You can read text (including punctuation) by page, paragraph, line, word, and character as well as determine characteristics like font and text color. Efficiently review tables with row and column navigation.

Narrator also has a navigation and reading mode called Scan Mode. Use it to get around Windows 10 using just the up and down arrows on your keyboard. You can also use a braille display to navigate your PC and read text.

When Narrator is turned on, you will hear Narrator echo toggle keys (ex: “Number lock on” or “Number lock off”) when the toggle keys (Caps lock, Num lock, Scroll lock) are turned on or off by default.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off hearing Narrator echo toggle keys when they are turned on or off in Windows 10 for your account.
